We want to thank each and every one of you for your enthusiastic support of our post on behalf of the Warrior Dog Foundation! Together, we’ve managed to raise a whopping $156 from our Memorial Day posts in their honor!
About the Warrior Dog Foundation
Founded by a former Navy SEAL, Mike Ritland, the Warrior Dog Foundation helps care for specially trained K-9 animals who have been retired from military service. The foundation helps to ensure that these dogs make a healthy transition from active service to living in a kennel facility designed especially for these heroic animals who’ve spent their entire lives training to protect and serve America during various deployments. While at their new facilities, each dog is also treated with much-needed rehabilitation services to assist them with their mental and physical needs. By joining Fetch! Pet Care in supporting this incredible foundation, you have helped these four-legged heroes access the care they need and deserve for the rest of their lives!
Spotlighting Your Comments
In case you missed the posts we’re referring to, we invited our Facebook and Instagram followers to join in our efforts to assist the Warrior Dog Foundation simply by publishing a comment under each post. We committed to giving the foundation $1 per comment up to a total of $250. We are overjoyed that your comments pushed that donation all the way up to (insert amount)!
All of your comments are deeply appreciated and here are a few we’d like to spotlight as they really warmed our hearts:
“Thank you for your service, K9 warriors” – Cheryl Barnes, Facebook
“Wonderful that you are also honoring the dogs who serve us. Thank you for remembering them too!” – Lisa Mariona, Facebook
“God bless our service dogs. They saved numerous lives and some lost theirs in return.” – Aline Guzzo
“Today da military doggiez dat died shud be honored too. Tankz fur ur service!” – Bea T Puddy, Facebook
“Many military working dogs have lost their lives protecting their handlers and saving many others. I thank and remember the canines the same as I remember our human service members. Thank you to the loyal and furry warriors that have put themselves in the way to protect others.” – a.c.chavez, Instagram
As you can see, the sentiments shared were so heartfelt and we are so appreciative that we could all come together to lend the Warrior Dog Foundation a most deserving hand!
